This review is from: Rome Industries 1705 Pie Iron Sandwich Cooker (Kitchen)
I bought this online without realizing that it doesn't pinch the bread together at the sides. That is the way my parents pie makers work, which is what I was looking for. I thought all pie makers were that way until I recieved this one. I know that is my fault for not researching this product more before I bought it. It's great for making sandwiches. But if you want to put pie filling between bread (or anything else that is a little more messy), it will be falling out of the sandwich.

Actually mine does pinch the sides of the bread together & seals the sandwich. We have so much fun with ours, I feel bad for you...are you closing it completely, locking the handles, not filling it too full, etc.?

Try using bigger bread.

Thanks, I almost made the same mistake assuming the sides would be pinched tightly.
I want one like mom used to have!

I must be using larger slices of bread. I butter the inside, put the bread in, put in pie filling, close then iron and trim the excess bread that overhangs the iron. I end up with sealed pies that are nicely crispy and sealed. I like this pie iron because the clip that seals the iron is much more heavy duty than the iron I got from a local sporting goods store.

This one does not crimp the bread, but it does seal it. Is that what you meant? The Palmer Cast Iron Sandwich Press here on Amazon does crimp, but it is more expensive. Worth it to me though because it is made in the USA.
